3-9-81 is a great show. 3-2-81 is also Fantastic - the opening Shakedown is very well delivered. Once again, I will have to throw in 9-5-82 (at the very least for the opening Playin > Shakedown).

I too have heard about when Phil is on the band is on, but I just wanted to share an observation about the tightness of the drummers being very inspiring. My biggest gripe with the 80's, apart from Jerry's decline, is when the drummers overplay and make everything way too busy. When Billy and Mickey hit the 1 together all is well :)
